School Trip

Longhill Goes to Norway 1969

By Tricia Leonard

This is the school photograph taken at Brighton Station on 22nd May 1969.
We were 3rd and 4th years then and it turned out to be an exciting an eventful trip.  We landed at Bergen and spent a few days there, I remember meeting all our pen friends, eating pancakes and going to the Ice Rink and finding it closed.  We then had a stunning rail journey stopping at Voss and we got off at Mjolfjell for our stay in a Youth Hostel.  There were stunning views, an icy fast river and an empty swimming pool.  I remember sweeping it out.

Google it! It is still there!

The names, please excuse spelling errors, are left to right and top to bottom.
I would love to fill in the gaps, if you can help.
